Are you passionate about fulfilling your destiny? In more than 2 decades of walking with the Lord and more than half of that in the ministry, I have learnt there are 2 destiny accelerators as revealed through scriptures.
You know that kind of success that makes people think you have got to belong to some cult or are using something other than God to make things happen in your life? That is what you get when the two factors you are about to discover align for your destiny.
The first of them is Your Location and the second is Time.
By your location, I am referring to where you are in relation to where God has sent you and what He has asked you to do. And by timing, I am looking at the timing of God for your specific assignment. These two factors being in sync can be the difference between the guy who is struggling and the one others think is using “something”
So in this post and the next, I want to show you how to ensure you have them working for you.
Your Location In Destiny
Whether you know it or not, you came into this world because there is an assignment that you had to fulfill. God saw a need that already existed or that would exist in your generation and packaged you with the resources to solve that problem.
Your temperaments, your emotions, your view and outlook on life, your likes and dislikes; everything that makes up this being called “YOU” was put in there to help you fulfill this assignment.
The irony of life, however, is that people get into this world and give themselves their own assignment. They suddenly create ambitions and pursuits for themselves that they begin to chase. Talk about chasing shadows …
And you know what? Those who chase shadow never catch them!
- What are you here for?
- Why were you born?
- Why has God given you breath in your nostrils?
- What are you here to accomplish?
Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. (Jonah 1:2)
When will you stop being a Jonah in the 21st century? When will you stop running from what you have been called to do?
Where is your own Nineveh? Where is your place of assignment?
Maybe it the corporate world that God has sent you into. Maybe it is the world of entertainment. Maybe it is even the church that you have an assignment for. Whatever it is, have you found that place? Are you in that place or are you journeying there?
God didn’t just send Jonah to Nineveh, He told him what to do there. He was specific about the task Jonah had to accomplish there. So it’s not enough to know the place of the assignment, it matters that you are doing exactly what you were sent there to do.
Little wonder why the Lord told Moses to see to it that he builds according to the pattern shown him on the mountaintop.
Imagine that Jonah actually went to Nineveh and instead of crying against it, he decided to celebrate with it. Though he was in the place of assignment, he wouldn’t be fulfilling any destiny there.
That is how some have done a great job of finding their place of assignment but missed the task! While they may have been sent into the world of politics, entertainment or business, they have completely lost the assignment and have become such as were never sent.
This month, right inside the Christian Life Academy Facebook group, I will be holding a Purpose Discovery Mini Class.
During our time together, I will help participants clarify:
- What their assignment really is
- Where their Nineveh is
- What they should be doing there
- How they can build their entire life around that assignment without feeling like they are missing out on something
- Tips for staying on track
- And so much more …
